I think the 60s and 70s had the best dance music. So here are some of my favourite songs ....
Dancing Queen - ABBA
Commonly regarded as one of the most successful singles of the 1970s.
First released in 1976, it is considered to be ABBA's signature song.
It was ABBA's only no 1 hit in the US (April 1977). It also hit no 1 in at least 13 other countries including New Zealand.
I spent many hours dancing to "Dancing Queen" .

Save The Last Dance For Me - The Drifters
I love this song.
It was written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman and first recorded in 1960 by Ben E King with
Their version spent three non-consecutive weeks at No 1 on the US pop chart and No 2 in the UK in December 1960.
I chose The Drifters version as this was the original and because D is for Drifters.

You Make Me Feel Like Dancing - Leo Sayer
Is taken from Leo Sayer's 1976 album Endless Flight and again I danced many hours to this song.
In 2008 he recorded a version with The Wiggles (An Australian children's music group) for their DVD.
